Dpreview reviewed a Nikon mount Tamron 10-24. They said it compared favorably to the Sigma 10-20.

I just got this lens and being a total amateur, I am enjoying it so far. So I have just started to experiment with it and I am having a blast!

Just a couple of more shots. Like anything you just have to play with this lens and get to know it's limitations but I love to take this lens with me as it has not failed to make me laugh at a shot I have taken.

I got my Tammy today. But like all my other (ultra) wide angle lenses I have problems to focus to infinity. The focus goes not higher than 3-9ft. My camera was already to the service and they said "af-system is perfect calibrated". I know in wide angle the hyperfocal distance is not that big, so everthing from 9ft or so should be sharp, but not if the lens don't sets the distance to more than 9ft.
If you watch the first two pictures you see that always the foreground is sharp. I only used the center af-field. On the second picture I find the lens very sharp for wide open (even tough the focus isn't there where I wanted).
The battery test shows no front- or backfocus. So the XSi seems to have problems with wide angle lenses. To bad, maybe I should buy a 40D or 50D to get a better focus system.

The lens is very immune to direct sun light

And the viewing angle is amazing (in the first image, I didn't lift up the camera, I still watched through the view finder). But the corners are very soft wide open, but the center is very sharp wide open.
